Small haul and review!

So today I went to the mall and picked up a few things with my sister and friend!

First thing that I got was this Paris Amour travel sized body lotion for $0! lol my friend was nice enough to give me a coupon!

Review: This lotion smells amazing! I would definitely recommend it if you have a bath and body works near where you live since it's on sale for only $1!!!!!

Swatches from left to right: Bene tint, Posie tint, High beam

I am super exited about this! I bought this benefit trio that contains the Posie tint, High beam, and the Bene tint!! You can buy this product at any sephora store for only $15!

Review: I had wanted to get this for a long time, but I had also always hesitated to, so I was psyched to finally get it! The posie tint is very tinted and it is very easy to work with . However, the bene tint is a little too watery and it is not as pigmented, if that's what you want to call it. It is more sheer than the posie tint but you can always build the colors and make them very dark, so I don't think that's really a problem. These pictures above are from a few ours ago and the tints are still as pigmented as they were when these swatches were made! However, the high beam does rub off... I guess I shouldn't be surprised since it is not a stain or waterproof. The High beam is the main reason that I actually bought this trio and I think that it is as good as the positive reviews I had heard about it. I would absolutely recommend this to all of you out there! Even though they are travel sized, it will be really hard to use it all up!

This gorgeous green waterproof Sephora eye liner for only $1!

Review: This is an amazing deal that is going on in sephora right now! It is only $1 too! Can it get better? Yes! It is super soft and glides on so easily on your eye. It is super pigmented as well. The picture shown above is only one strike of the eyeliner on my hand. It is waterproof so you don't have to worry about it running off your face. It doesn't smudge but it gets off easier than I thought it would. I guess that would be a good thing because you don't have to worry about your eyeliner smudging or having to scrub your eye to get it off!

I am super happy of my purchase today! Let me know if you like these small reviews! I have gotten a few other requests to put up reviews on some specific products, which I will very soon. Let me know if you ever want me to do a review on anything in the future :)

Life

This is just a quick update of my life recently and what I have been doing. I know I haven't posted in a long time but that's because things have been complicated and I barely have any time to post anything. We have been and still are with my family that we haven't seen in a while and they are staying at our house so it is really nice to hang out with them after a long time. I still have a lot of summer reading to do left and that might get in my way but I will definitely be doing more posts now!
Anyways, I went to my friend's house a few days ago and we took some pics... lol yes, we were planking :P

Gifts!

Hey guys! So yesterday, my mom's cousin came to visit from New York, and she brought my mom, Saba, and I some goodies! It was really nice of her to even bring us anything at all and I absolutely love what she brought for me :)
Here's what I got:

Lol obviously she got them from Macy's :)


Here is the first pair. The blue rhombus actually sort of changes color based on what you are wearing. Basically, the color of your shirt just reflects on it! Isn't that cool?
It's Sterling Sliver or 14KT gold-filled earwire.
Macy's for $54 (Yes, she did forget to take the price tag off :P She notices as she was giving it to us )

This is the second pair. It's like a 3-layered earring with the colors bronze, silver, and gold. This is Sterling Silver or 14KT gold-filled earwire as well.
Macy's for $58

The last day to enter is 08/14/11

Smokey cat eye!

This is a gorgeous smokey double winged cat eye that I created today! It's not very wearable for an everyday look but I think that it would be great for a night out or a party! (Basically anywhere you would wear a smokey eye) Please let me know in the comments if you would like a tutorial or not. I hope you enjoy!





  • wet n wild eyeshadow palette in the color "Don't steal my thunder". I absolutely love the wet n wild eyeshadow palettes. They are super pigmented so I didn't even use a primer for this look.
  • Covergirl lashblast volume mascara in the color "Very Black"
  • Sephora eyeliner in the color "Glitter black"

Sorry!

Hey guys! So this post is just mostly about what I have been doing these past few days and why I haven't been blogging during these days. First of all, my mom's cousin is coming down from New York to Kentucky to stay with us, which I am super thrilled about! She is sooo nice and I can't wait. Since she is coming, we were cleaning the house yesterday for practically the whole day. I know it's just one day and I haven't blogged for few days but I have also been busy with helping my uncle out with a very difficult task, and deciding on a concerto for my piano, which I finally decided today!
Here were my top two choices for the concerto:
You might think that the second piece is much harder, but really, the first piece is much harder due to the technique. I did choose the first piece just because I couldn't decide which one, so my teacher told me to go with the first piece. I can't wait to learn it!
I will definitely do more posts again! Sorry if this post was super boring. :)

What's in my pool bag

The title probably gave away what this post is going to be about, but I will tell you guys anyways. So basically I will show you what I usually take to the pool (You have probably heard of what's in my beach bag but since I won't be going to the beach this summer, I thought that I should as well call this a what's in my pool bag post).





















The bag that I take usually switches up but this is the bag that I take most of the time.













  • Ipod
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • A book (You might be thinking why I take a science book to the pool, but it's because I have to read it for my school as summer reading)
  • Hair Brush
  • Gum :) (No, I do not chew gum in the pool, I just always carry some)
  • Hair ties
  • Towel
  • A plastic bag (I take a plastic bag to put my swim suit in there afterwards since it will be wet)
  • Wallet (Don't carry much money in there since my bag is fully open to the public) lol
  • A small pouch with a hand sanitizer, concealer, body spray, and a sunscreen for my face.
  • deodorant
  • Travel sized shampoo
  • Travel sized body wash
This is basically what I take to the pool with me! I do like to take a shower if there is any afterwards to get the chlorine out of my hair. I hope you guys enjoyed and have fun the next time you go to the pool!

My paintings!

If you have read my previous blogs, you probably know that I just painted my room a few weeks ago. I painted it a very pretty blue-ish turquoise color. It turned out very nice but for the past few weeks I have been trying to think of ways I can decorate my room and make it seem more elegant. There are still a few things that I need for decorations but a week or two ago, I bought two picture frames, and I decided that I want to frame my paintings and put them in my room!
I think that they turned out great and here are two pictures of them:













(The color of the walls show up much darker that they are in this picture)













(lol sorry about the reflection)

I will have a picture of my room up very soon! Leave a comment letting me know what you think about the paintings :)

Gold eye look

This is a gold and shimmery look that I created on my sister today. I think that this look is very wearable in the day time and the night time. It would look gorgeous with a red lip at night time to give it that dramatic look. I was not planning on doing a makeup look or a tutorial but whenever my sister and I get bored, we do makeovers (lol), so I thought that I would show you guys the look that I created on her. I hope you enjoy!

























(Sorry for the terrible lighting and the glitter fall-outs under her eye)


How to create this look:

First, I took a gold eye shadow and applied it to her lids. Then, I took a deep brown color and applied it in her outer corners. I worked what was left on the brush into her crease. I also took a light brown and applied it to her crease and placed that same color beneath her lower lash line. For the extra glamour and shine, I took a light champagne color and applied it to the center of her lid, her brow bone, and on her inner corners.
For the liner, I used a gel eyeliner on her top lashes and also tight-lined. To get the eyeliner around her lashes, I used a black eye shadow with a very thin brush and applied that between the gaps in her lashes. For bottom lashes, I used a black pencil eye liner on her lower lash line. To end the look, I just applied a coat of mascara.

Products used:
  • aerie radiant eye shadow palette in the color goddess
  • wet n wild eye shadow palette called Don't Steal My Thunder
  • Black wet n wild gel eyeliner
  • Sephora pencil eye liner in the color glitter black
  • Cover Girl Lash blast volume mascara

Harry Potter!

Yesterday, a bunch of my friends and I went and saw Harry Potter and the deathly hallows part 2. I really liked the movie and I would recommend all of you who haven't seen it, to watch it. The theater was very full and and all of the 3D tickets were sold out for the whole night, but gladly, we didn't want to watch it in 3D. There were numerous times that the crowd applauded and laughed, and I'm sure a lot of them enjoyed the movie as much as I did.
I am kind of sad that the series ended because I've been watching Harry Potter since I was a little girl and it brings back tons of memories :D

(Picture on the top is the cast during their first movie, and picture on the bottom is during the making of their last movie)

Moisturize!!!!

Moisturizers have always been something that I never paid much attention to. Of course, I did use moisturizers often but I never really notices them making any changes to my skin. Today was the perfect day to go to the pool in Kentucky. After I got out of the pool, showered, and changed back into my clothes, I realized that my skin was very dry and stiff. I could barely move my face, which was a shock because I normally have a very oily skin. I told my mom as we were getting into the car, and she told me to try not to move your face too much because the stiffness can give you wrinkles (Of course, I am way too young to get wrinkles but all these things are what lead to wrinkles.... remember, better to prevent than to cure!!). So that got me into thinking because I had never really thought of something like that. When I got home, I put on an oil based moisturizer, and my face was back to normal in seconds. I also decided to do some research on moisturizers, and it turns out that they actually help your skin in so many different ways!!


Don't forget! Keep your skin Moisturized :D

New Nails

Hey Everyone! So I painted my nails gold and my ring finger a cream color. To make it fun and interesting, I made a heart in the ring finger with the same gold color that I used on the other fingers.
In case you guys want to know how to draw the heart, you can just use a toothpick or I even sometimes use a dead pen, lol, and draw a heart. I hope you guys enjoy!

Target!

Today we decided to go to target with my mom because she needed to get an anti frizz hair cream. Since it was pouring rain in Kentucky today, we to had to sprint to the store. My sister and my mom went first but as soon as my mom stepped out of the car, she jumped back in the car and said that she wasn't willing to get wet in the rain.... of course, then it was my turn. I was stupid enough to wear sandals, so it made it even harder. after the long running in the rain, I finally got inside, where a few adults started laughing... I was guessing that they saw me run into a bike. :P
Anyways, my sister and I went into target with 35 dollars to pick up an anti frizz control hair cream, but instead, we came out of target with 2 dollars left and without the hair cream. It's not as bad as it sound... my mom knew that we were getting more stuff and she told us to get the anti frizz cream if it was in the cream form, which we couldn't find. So here's what I ended up getting.


The first thing was the covergirl natureluxe silk foundation. I don't wear foundation but people said that this foundation felt very light and it doesn't have full and heavy coverage, which was exactly what I was looking for. I bought this at target for around $9.


Next I got the fit me powder. It has exactly what I need inside it. A little more than $6 at target


This is something that My sister and I bought to share because we will only use it once a week and it won't run out very easily. It's the Aussie deep conditioner. A few weeks ago we bought the Aussie conditioner but we haven't gotten to use it yet. I have heard that they are both very good so I am very excited to use them!!!

I didn't get much today but I just wanted to share what I got with you guys.

Bored...

Today was a really depressing day :(
I did my summer reading for more than 8 hours!!!! Literally, the only times I stopped reading were when I went to eat something. I still have four more pages to read but for some reason I couldn't finish it so I will read the rest tomorrow. I don't know I guess I had read too much today and I just didn't really want to finish it on the same day... yeah no need to say it, I'm weird!
Anyways, just letting you guys know, I wasn't reading the whole day because I don't have a life but I reallyyyy need to finish my book because my book is due in three days and before I return it, I have to do two projects about it :(
lol okay well I should probably stop talking (or writing) :P

My weekend!

So I had a pretty fun weekend I thought that I should share it with you guys. So first off, yesterday we went to one of our family friend's house and I got to see my friends, Ali, Fatemeh, and Nima after a long time... well maybe not that long but I'm not used to not seeing them for more than at least once a week. Anyways, the people's house we went to, they just got back from San Francisco, where they live, and their son who we hadn't talked to for 3 years was back! So Saba, Ali, Fatemeh, Nima, Nima (lol two Nimas :P ), and I played cards and such for a long time. It wasn't really fair though because we played this game that Nima and Ali were teamed up for and they kept winning because of all their smart signals.
Today we also had a cookout and after we ate, Saba, Ali, Nima, Nima, and I went down to the small river kind of thing and we finished a half-made bridge made across the river with rocks and crossed it! It was kinda of challenging... lol Ali and Nima got across first but Ali had to come back and help saba, Nima and I ( well mostly Saba and I because Nima just walked in the water... he was going stupid mode! ). We finally got back and came up with a nickname for our crew (lol) that crosses rivers and walked into the woods called "THE ADVENTURERS".
So since tomorrow is 4th of July, we have decided to go to boonsborough early in the morning! Well let's just hope that the rain doesn't wash us away :P
we are planning to go early in the morning, meet up, and the drive there, have breakfast and lunch, then come back before it gets dark... idk but we will most likely go downtown and watch the fireworks.
So I know that not all of you guys know Fatemeh, Ali, Nima, and Nima but I will probably be talking about them a lot in my posts so I might as well tell you guys who they are!
Fatemeh- finished first year of college, funny, quiet
Ali- several years of college, hilarious, tells lots of jokes ( NEVER EVER drive in his car!!!!!!!)
Nima- almost becoming a doctor, well I don't really hang out with him much and he is going back to San Francisco tomorrow so probably won't be in posts
Nima- going into high school, silly

You all are probably thinking why do you hang out with college people so much? well even though they are in college we just like to hang out and I probably hang out with them more than I do with our friends at my own age and we always have fun :P
For Example, we watch movies, have bun fires, go to MANY different places, make water slides and play around and etc. Also, we hang out with Sarah, a senior at HC but she might not be in many of my posts because she is on vacation and won't be coming back a little before schools start again :( In case you don't know who Sarah is, she is one of our closest friends, and we hang out with her SOOOOOOOOOO much... For examples, half of my sleepovers I have ever had have probably been with Sarah. Yeah you pretty much get the point.

Sorry if I bored you guys but I thought that what I have been doing has been really fun for me and letting you guys know who some of my friends were are probably helpful :)
